WIDA forges ahead with new English language proficiency test
from Education Week
The 31 states that have banded together to create a new, computer-based assessment system for English language learners are getting their first glimpses at the new English language proficiency exam being developed to measure the language demands of the Common Core State Standards. Known as ASSETS — Assessment Services Supporting ELs through Technology Systems — the assessment system is being developed on behalf of member states by the World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment Consortium, or WIDA, based at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
